Justin Verlander's velocity decline in one at bat

Last year Justin Verlander had not accepted his limitations. Adjusting will help him regain his dominance. Sitting in the tenth row down the third base line at Comerica Park on a Saturday night while watching a playoff game with 40,000 of your closest friends may be the most enjoyable way to take in a baseball game. A generation ago, watching on a big color television was becoming a reasonable alternative.

ZiPS projects the 2015 Detroit Tigers pitchers

ZiPS thinks Verlander will improve, while Shane Greene steps back. A few days ago we reviewed the ZiPS projections for the Tigers' hitters. They forecast performance for the pitchers too, so let's see what nuggets of optimism ZiPS has for us. Leading the way for Detroit is .... Max Scherzer. Apparently the algorithm must assign Max to a team, so he defaults to the Tigers for now. I hope this is a really smart computer.
